|Rocket, how many total seizures have you had?
Bama had one in June 2008 and one in March 2009. The vet did a bunch of tests and checked for trauma to the head, etc and came to the conclusion that he might be epileptic since it is very common in doxies.
Anyway, no seizures since that we know of. However before the first one looking back we have suspected that one may have occured while we were at work, but we can't be sure.
But, I had no idea that they didn't need grains bc of it. I may have read that back in 2008 and forgot. Bama has ate severa grain inclusive foods since. Actually the past couple of weeks he has been eating Artemis bc they sent him 12 samples of it.
Glad you posted this!
And, Goodman that's a good point as well...since eating grain inclusive he does seem to be a bit more full after a meal.
If you are going to go with grain free, I do like TOTW. It's a great food and very affordable. Allee and Bama do very well on it.
Also, if you can afford it Orijen is one of the very best kibbles. And, Acana is made by the same company and a wonderful food as well. Acana is more affordable than Orijen. However, they do both have rosemary.
Dahlia, how come rosemary is bad for epilepsy? I feel terrible bc Bama got liquid salmon oil for over a yr with rosemary extract...but he hasn't had a seizure since March 2009.
